Government has released 249,600,000 Kwacha Constituency Development Fund -CDF.- to all the 156 Constituencies.
Local Government and Rural Development Minister GARY NKOMBO says 1.6-million Kwacha has been allocated to each constituency.
Mr. NKOMBO has urged Members of Parliament to strictly observe the guidelines on the use of CDF.
He has also urged Members of Parliament to ensure they complete projects that were started in their various Constituencies.
Mr. NKOMBO says the early distribution of the funds is part of the promise by President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA to ensure equitable and timely distribution of CDF to all Constituencies.
